Membership

Membership of Mothers’ Union is open to all (men, women, single, married, widowed or divorced), who agree with our Aims and Objectives and have been baptised into any Christian denomination.

For 2017 the annual subscription is £26.50 for single or £45 for joint membership, there are three types of membership available:

  • Branch Membership – Members are part of a group attached to a parish who meet together usually once a month for fellowship, worship and a talk. They also engage in projects and join in deanery and diocesan events. Every branch may organise themselves as best suits them and their parish and therefore there are quite wide differences in the way branches are run.
  • Diocesan Membership – Diocesan Membership is for those who, for a variety of reasons, do not want to be a member of a branch, or cannot because there is no local branch. Each member has a contact who sends them Focus (the diocesan newsletter) and other publications, together with a letter informing them of local and diocesan events to which they are invited. Some diocesan members take part in projects with local groups or within their area and some hold office or participate in an area of work in which they are particularly interested. Some simply use their membership as a way of supporting the Mothers’ Union.
  • Indoor Members’ Prayer Circle – This type of membership is for those who are not able to participate in other types of membership, but still wish to retain their interest in the Mothers’ Union. They each have a correspondent who sends them Focus and other communications to keep them informed about the current MU. These members form a powerhouse of prayer for the society.

Verse of the Day

“[The birth of Jesus foretold] In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, ‘Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.’” — Luke 1:26-28 Listen to chapter Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica. Powered by BibleGateway.com.
